Sweet Tater

It's nearly impossible for me to believe, but our Sweet Tater had his first "real" food tonight -- sweet potatoes! During a talk with Dr. Terry last week, we discussed Will's 90th percentile ranking in height and weight, and she said because we have such a big little man on our hands, we should go ahead with rice cereal on its own (not just in a sludgy bottle), then introduce a first food (preferably a veggie) by the time he reached his 5th month. Well on Saturday he took rice cereal so well -- swallowed nearly every bite! -- we decided to try the sweet potatoes tonight (a few days ahead of schedule). He grimaced at first, but literally after his second bite he became a baby bird and opened that little gullet for all the taties his Mama could scoop into him!

Yes, he's wearing his Saints jersey underneath the "Boys Are Just Better" bib.

Hasta la vista, sweet taties.

Hooray! Saints are winning and Will-Baby is full!

I've never seen him so happy after eating! It's not quite human food yet, but it's getting there!

By the by, Christopher wants to know when you're going to post the picture of us teaching Marty how to play euchre. He asked me about it again last night. :)

I was so proud of the Saints last night! They demolished the Hatriots (get it?)! Boy, they really showed some awesome sportsmanship last night, pulling their first-string offensive players with a full five minutes left to play. If I were a Patriot fan, I would have been so mad that my team just gave up. They have no class.

Ha! The Hatriots -- I will share that with Marty tonight. He kept telling Will that good always conquers evil, and that the Patriots were really mean. :) I couldn't believe when they pulled Brady and Co. Belichick (sp?) just gets on my last nerve, but at least he's paying this season for his foolish decisions (I guess he'll get away with Spy Gate).

Pictures of Marty being taught euchre coming soon!

Aw! Love those men of yours! I was so sad that Matt and I couldn't cuddle little Will when you were over. We were restraining ourselves due to sniffles and such. I always hated when people coughed and sniffed all over my kids.
